These fibers have been engineered to have a sustainable anti-pilling performance throughout the life-time of a garment. Products made out of Pilbloc fibers have been tested and proven by several international accrediting agencies. Pilbloc fibers deliver pilling performance of 4-4.5 grade in ICI Pill Box Test Method. These fibers will give a silky soft touch and feel to the skin.
Pilbloc is a guarantee for anti-pilling performance throughout the lifetime of the garment since the anti-pilling properties are not obtained by chemical means.
